IP Ratings of Enclosures

The IP rating of an enclosure is dictated not only by the enclosure itself, but also by its fixing method, lid sealing and cable entries. After the 'IP' (Ingress Protection) part of an enclosures protection rating, the first number equates to the protection offered by the box as regards to solid objects from screwdrivers and fingers to fine particulate dust.

Most plastic and metal enclosures offer a 4, 5 or 6 rating (objects under 1mm diameter), A 4 is suitable for a basic wiring junction protected by a wall, ceiling, cabinet or similar in a dry environment, but a 5 or 6 is ...

FUTEK White Paper

Vibration Testing of Miniature S-Beam (LSB200) & Miniature Beam Load Cell (LSM400)

During this past year FUTEK Advanced Sensor Technology, located in Irvine California, found itself faced with yet another unique challenge from a client requiring a specialized sensor. This new challenge would not only require the sensors in question to endure the usual environmental hazards of high/low temperature and moisture, but also survive vibration testing to a controlled industry vibration standard by an independent testing lab. What follows is a chronological account of the preparation, testing and an analysis of the required vibration testing.
